“Relaxing week in Essaouria”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2013

We had a very relaxing holiday in Essaouria and beautifully decorated Riad. The hamman and massage are a must-have experience of this place along with taking advantage of the jacuzzi on terrace. Fabulous views of the sea crashing against the wall of the Riad topped it off. Many thanks Gisele and Ernest for a lovely break.

Fabulous riad right in the heart of the medina and so easy to find.The riad is only about 100 mtrs from the shops and restaurants and about a 10 min stroll from the port which you must go to as it is a real experience seeing all the fresh fish being unloaded and sold on little stalls.
We stayed in the Hanadama suite which was enormous and beautifully decorated and was directly overlooking the beahc and ocean.The views were amazing.You really must stay in a suite as they all overlook the ocean even though they are a little bit more expensive.
Breakfast was served on the roof terrace overlooking the ocean and the food was brilliant.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The only negative comment was that my wife was having a relaxing massage and at the same time the Hamman was being cleaned for the next guest instead of waiting until her massage had finished.
We stayed in September which apparently is the best time to stay inEssauira as it is not windy (It wasn't windy at all when we stayed).
All in all an excellent riad in an excellent location with fantastic views

Great location, and definitely worth investing in sea view suite as the views were spectacular and sound of surf very relaxing. Lovely hosts made our stay even better - great breakfasts on the terrace and always on hand to suggest good restaurant selections. Hope to be back, highly recommended both riad and Essaouira as a great place for a long weekend

After a fraught taxi journey to the riad, all was made better by the welcoming greeting from Ernest (including mint tea and delicious traditional homemade biscuits). From then on, it just got better and better, the riad is full of charm with a traditional moroccan decor and, best of all, our room didn't just have a view of the sea, it was in the sea!!! Breakfast on the roof terrace was fabulous with a wonderful view of the atlantic.
Ernest is a very entertainning host and had great tips on where to eat and what to see. Perfectly located inside the medina, all was nearby but still in a quiet location. We had a great couple's hamman at the riad, which is apparently difficult to get elsewhere.
Friendly staff, very clean and confortable. We had originaly planned to stay for 2 nights but extended it to 4 nights as it was so pleasant and the medina had plenty to explore!

Room Tip: Choose a sea view room, well worth the extra! Book a couple's hamman as for religious reasons...

We were travelling across Morocco just before the wedding of my sister. She had reserved another place in the city but we were a bit disappointed so we went looking for another place...

We stumbled on it at the end of an alley. Best luck of the entire trip. Ernest and Gisele were superb hosts. We treated ourselves with the ocean room: comfortable, beautiful... a treat.

Food was great. We had the chance of having dinner there and this was in fact the best meal of our stay in Essaouira.

As with any riad, the rooms can be a tiny bit more noisy. They were great for us but if perfect calm is the goal, you might want to choose rooms at the back. No view but comfortable and super quiet.

Finally, my wife says she had the best Hammam/Massage experience from her entire stay in Morocco there.

You can't go wrong...

(We were there April 2012 but the list from "when did you travel don't go that far)

Room Tip: Ocean rooms are amazing. Back rooms are super quiet and a little bit cheaper.

We had an excellent stay last week. The best sea views, friendly, helpful staff and the best dinner we had in Morrocco. We would also recommend the hammam and massage! It was fantastic!
The location is also excellent, being right in the centre and within easy walking distance of the beach. Essaouira is a quiet, relaxing place to stay after busy Marrakech and the beach is wonderful.

My husband and I spent three nights in May with our toddler, our dear friends and their toddler. Ask for one of the ocean view rooms. The riad is lovely, among the nicest we have stayed anywhere in Morocco. The owners are top-notch and the staff are exceptional. We loved our stay and will be back as soon as we can! Although I do not recommend staying in a riad with a two year old, we managed just fine. The hamman is a must!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view
